FULL Backup does not restore database content

Hi,
I took full backups of my server using the backup option within WHM. I backed up every user.

I restored the backed up files after the server was erased, although it did not restore database content. I looked in the full backup, and I could not find the mysql file.

Additionally, before the server was erased, I took backups by logging into each cPanel account and doing a full backup of everything (databases, files, mail filters). Even after looking at those backups, I cannot find where the mysql database content was backed up to.

What am I missing?

Hello :)

It will be difficult to determine if there were any MySQL issues during the backup process if the source server is already terminated. Do you see a "mysql" directory when manually extracting the archive?

Thank you.
